Going to start off this blog by telling you that I really do not care about the Penguins or the Capitals. They often play my Rangers tough, but I had to get this off of my chest. Tom Wilson is a giant shit stain. Don’t believe me? Look at what he has done the past 3 years to the Penguins in the playoffs.
How many suspensions? Zero. How though? Drew Doughty just got a game for making a hockey play with zero intent to injure with the head NOT being the first point of contact. Tom Wilson hits Brian Dumolin, the pride of Biddeford Maine, directly in the head. No glancing blow, no nothing. Penguins fans had a right to be a bit upset with this, especially with what happened last night.
Okay, so this hit doesn’t look as bad as the others. Having said that, CLEARLY AT SOME POINT WILSON HITS ASTON-REESE IN THE HEAD. How do I know that? Because shoulder to shoulder hits don’t break jaws, thats just science.
I also understand mind games in hockey. Wilsons job is to take people off their game and I totally get that. But, maybe you kind of chill out for a minute when someone is laying on the ice with a broken jaw. Maybe, just maybe, don’t sit there laughing about it?
The NHL always tells us fans that they are trying to eliminate headshots.
Oh are you? How about you prove it.
